I have a 5 year old who doesn’t want to eat, clean, go to bed on time or anything.. She is the youngest of kids whos ages range from 21 to 14 so needless to say she is super spoiled.
I had to figure out a way to motivate her (bribe) into doing the things I need her to do. She loves money so I thought, why not make her special penny banks and give her a couple coins to drop in each time she does what she is told.
My thoughts went a step further when I had the idea to spell out her name with the jars, her name is ZaRiyon (pronounced like Darrion but with a Z) but ran out of jars when I got to the y. So I decided to do her nick name Ariy, I eliminated the Z that you see in the video all together…
My thought, as I said above is to give her some change each time she does what is asked of her, which is a reward within itself, but once she has enough to fill all the jars then we will cash in the change and I will take her where she wants to spend it…. I think this will also teach her about saving.
We have just gotten started, but so far she is super excited about this idea… She told me that her penny banks are so cool. Im excited too because once she has emptied them, we can start all over…
